Forum: texts Subject: Bad link - Frederick Rolfe: Hadrian The Seventh

Can someone please set up the correct link to
Frederick Rolfe: Hadrian The Seventh (complete).

This is permanently linked to a book called:
Nursing vs. dosing: a treatise on the care of dogs in health and disease By Stephen Tillinghast -
http://www.archive.org/details/nursingvsdosing00hammgoog

Many thanks. I am trying to record this as an audio book so would appreciate it.

There are six copies of Hadrian the Seventh listed on Internet Archive, all copied from Google Books

http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=hadrian%20the%20seventh

..but none of them are actually Hadrian the Seventh. They were imported from Google Books, but Google Books does not currently have a copy. But on Hathi Trust - the academic repository where Google Book scans send a secondary copy - sure enough it is there, meaning GB had it at one time and then removed it:

http://catalog.hathitrust.org/Search/Home?checkspelling=true&;lookfor=Hadrian+the+Seventh&type=all&submit=Find

.. but now it's in "search only" mode, probably because the three versions they have were published post-1923, even though the book is from 1904 and in the public domain. Perhaps related, the book is recently back in print.

Anyway, this doesn't help you, I don't think a full copy of it exists on IA or GB or Hathi

Thanks for pointing out the six books wrongly called Hadrian the Seventh. In each case, we were originally provided an incorrect OCLC number, which we used to grab a catalog record - the wrong one, of course. All six books should now have correct metadata.
